Mortal Kombat X Raiden character movesets detailed

Mortal Kombat X Raiden Render

NetherRealm Studios’ creative director Ed Boon outlines Raiden’s move sets in the newest Mortal Kombat outing.

We’ve got some more Mortal Kombat X news for you here, this time it’s in the form of a video narrated by Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon. Each character in the game will have three different move sets/character variations. The variations will come with their own moves and play styles, and Boon talks us though each of those for Raiden in the video.

Raiden’s styles are Thunder God; improves lightning attacks allowing for longer combos and more damage; Displacer focusses on teleportation to increase Raiden’s agility so he’s harder to hit; and Storm Lord lets him set lightning traps that can be chained together across the battlefield. Check out the video below, there’s more of those cool x-ray attacks we all love.

Mortal Kombat X is due for release in 2015 for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC.
